How Push Doctor serves Preston
There are around 115,000 people in Preston, all of whom may need to turn to their local walk-in centre if they fall ill.
That could mean a long queue in the waiting room, and many people simply can't afford to take that much time out of their day.
With Push Doctor, you won't have to.
You'll see a GP in minutes on your smartphone, tablet or desktop device, and you can have your video consultation wherever you choose.
You can get an appointment from 8am until 8pm every day, including weekends and Bank Holidays.

No, Push Doctor is a fully online consultation service. Without needing to leave you home, you can video call or text chat with a trained GP and have prescriptions sent to your local pharmacy. To book your first online appointment, just create an account with Push Doctor.

With a team of qualified GPs at hand, Push Doctor can diagnose, offer healthcare advice and even prescribe medication — all over video calls and text chats.

Additionally, consultations are not recorded and sensitive data is only saved within your medical record.
Can I see an online doctor with the NHS?
You can see an online doctor with the NHS, provided that your current GP surgery has partneded with Push Doctor. You can, however, still see an online doctor if your local surgery is not currently partnered with us, you'll just need to do it privately for a fee.

What is a walk-in centre?
Walk-in centres are sites that provide medical attention for routine ailments and injuries. The benefit of a walk-in centre is that patients do not need to be registered with the facility or a GP to receive care at the centre. If you don't need emergency treatment, however, Push Doctor is a more convinient way to recieve medical advice from NHS proffesionals.
What services do walk-in centres have?
If you need non-emergancy healthcare but can't wait for an appointment with your GP, walk-in centres can offer assistance in a number of areas, including:including:-
- Coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms
- Skin conditions
- Stomach upsets
- Asthma and other breathing problems
- Back pain
- Ear, eye and throat infection
- Cuts, strains and sprains
Can you just go to a walk-in centre?
Walk-in centres are available to the public without the need to call ahead first. They do, however, have specific opening times, meaning you won't be able to recieve out-of-hours treatment. Another thing to consider is your wait time. You don't need to book an appointment to be treated in a walk-in centre, but if their are a number of other patients who also need treatment, you may have a long wait to be seen by a doctor.
What's the alternative to a walk-in centre?
Not everyone enjoys visiting walk-in centres, which is where we come in. Push Doctor lets you book an appointment with a doctor without leaving the house. With trained GPs who can prescribe treatments over video calls or text chats, you can receive the treatment and specialist advice you’re looking for without even needing to leave your own home. To get started, all you need to do is set up an account with Push Doctor and set up your first digital appointment.
